How Much Longer

How long must I cry inside
How many times must I die in this life
How often will I fall short
How many dreams must I abort
How many empty nights must I endure
How many second guesses before I am sure
How long will this nothingness last
About as long as this emptiness has
How much longer must I be alone
How much longer can I hold my own
On what day will I feel alright
On what day will I have my white knight
In which hour will I feel content
At which time will I stop my descent
When can I expect a blessed event
How much longer can this go on
How much more can this sorrow encroach upon

    "On what day will I feel alright?"- I cannot tell you how much I relate to this one simple, yet powerful verse. I relate to the whole piece in fact, but that one line struck a chord in my heart and soul. Thank you for that :)

    As long as God decides it to. Our faith's all we have to get us through. Tomorrow comes, but a day too late. From birth till death, heaven holds our fate. A heart won't hear these words of wisdom. So your mind must take charge of what's to come. You asked the question to air your grievance. As long as you live, it wil never make sense. Thanks for stopping by April.
